Thank you to our 2023 Telethon Sponsors

The 18th Annual Oneida County History Center Telethon presented by Bank of Utica surpassed its goal and raised $40,240 to protect and preserve Oneida County history! Community support has an incredible impact because the History Center is largely funded by private sources and relies on donations and membership as a primary source of income. Thank you to everyone who joined, renewed, donated, or tuned in and helped make the evening a success. Read the full story on our News Page.
